Thursday night was Los Angeles' very own version of Fashion's Night Out so I, of course, had to be a part of it. I skimmed the list of participating stores in my area and saw that Torrid's store at the Westfield Mall in Culver City was listed. I had plans to meet up with some friends over on Melrose Ave and to attend a party at the Beverly Center later in the night, so I made Torrid my first stop. I was greeted by the two most lovely ladies, Sandra and Symone, who were working the Fashion's Night Out event, and I cannot say enough wonderful things about them. They were such great sports and even helped me pick out what would eventually be my evenings new outfit!
I lapped the store a couple times, grabbed what I liked and hit the dressing room... my own personalized dressing room! I just love that! AND I managed to not lock myself out which is a success in itself.
Though I was tempted to buy everything, I limited myself to three things...
1. I knew I had to have the grey Source of Wisdom skinny jeans that I found on the... get ready.. CLEARANCE rack! I felt like they were literally constructed to fit me perfectly. They sat above my hips and butt rather than cutting me off where I am fuller, and they were nice and long.
2. I loved the Blue Open-Knit Banded pullover when I shot it originally but trying it on in the store, on my own time, made me really realize I needed it! I think the "off-the-shoulder" look is such a relaxed yet sexy style and the sheerness of the top gives me the option to get creative with what I choose to wear underneath.
3. And my favorite of all were these multi-colored, zig-zag leggings that I ALSO found in the clearance section! Huge score!
... In fact, I liked them so much that I decided I wanted to wear them for the rest of the night. I had originally worn one of my favorite "go-to" lace Torrid dresses (I shot it in a style post here) and though I still love it dearly, I wanted something a little bit edgier to compete with all the fashionistas out for the night using the sidewalk as their runway. I told Symone and Sandra I needed help deciding what to wear with them, and they suggested I pair them with a basic tank top and the new sheer Black Button-Up Chiffon Hi-Lo Top. And they were VERY right. Did I say "3 Things"? I meant FIVE. Oh well. And might I just add that I got all five things for just over $120 with the Fashion's Night Out sale, clearance items, and my newly opened and potentially very dangerous Torrid credit card! Success!I bid my farewells to the fabulous Sandra and Symone and thanked them for their help and fashion guidance, and was off to meet up with my friends for the Genlux Magazine party on the roof of the Beverly Center.I had a wonderful evening in my new Torrid outfit and of course rocked my grey jeans and Blue Knit top all day Friday. The night was wonderful and I'm sending a big thank you to Sandra, Symone, and Torrid for helping me feel even more fashionable yet again!
